For the first time ever, Netflix has given the world a sneak peek backstage, showing us what is in the pipeline for the year. The world’s largest entertainment company promises a new film each week, featuring an exciting cast from around the globe. It released the list of films on its website Wednesday.

The upcoming films will be featuring Leonardo DiCaprio,
Sandra Bullock, Dwayne Johnson, Idris Elba, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence,
Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Garner, Gal Gadot, Dave Bautista, Naomi Watts, Jake
Gyllenhaal and others.

Here are some of the films we are particularly looking
forward to:

The Girl On The Train

Parineeti Chopra, who made her debut in 2011 in Ladies vs
Ricky Bahl, joins Aditi Rao Hydari, Kirti Kulhari and Avinash Tiwary in this
nail-biting murder mystery. It will be aired on February 26. Meera (Chopra)
watches a couple during her daily train commutes and fantasizes about their
lives, until something out of the ordinary catches her off-guard.

“There is plenty to
relate to – rejection, loneliness, voyeurism, daily commutes on which we see
and don’t see things,” Director Ribhu Dasgupta said of the film.

The White Tiger

Adarsh Gourav plays Balram Halwai, the driver of Rajkummar

The film is based on Aravind Adiga’s New York Times bestseller and 2008 Man

and society for the last seven decades. It is a fictional account of the private
life of Marilyn Monroe.

The New Yorker called the myth of Monroe “special because it
combines three feminine personae”.

“First, there is Norma Jeane Baker, normal girl, an
illegitimate child, she longs for Daddy, family, education and her first
memories are of sitting rapt in a dark theatre, the Church of Hollywood, where
she goes to worship stars instead of saints,” it wrote.

“The second is Marilyn Monroe, the pinup, bombshell and
movie goddess. She is the artificial creation of the Hollywood studio system.

“The third, the Blonde, is a symbol, the pure and virginal
creature of fairy tales and religious parables. In popular culture and
advertising, she stands for the upper-class, tidy, and stainless existence.”

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

This re-make of Nickeloden’s Rise of the Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles will bring back the 1990s TV favorite. The Ninja Turtles face
their greatest challenge yet, the logline tells us, when a mysterious stranger
arrives from the future with a dire warning of a terrifying alien species – the

Fear Street Trilogy

Another throwback to the 1990s, this film series is based on
RL Stine’s best-selling horror series. A group of teenagers discover that
mysterious occurrences that have plagued their town for generations may be
connected and that they may be the next victims.
